Youth Week

The dates of Youth Week 2022 will be announced soon.

Youth Week celebrates young people and their contribution to their local communities. It is now the largest annual youth participation event in Australia. Youth Week is a week that provides young people with an opportunity to express their views and act on issues that affect their lives.

Youth Week is an opportunity for young people to:

  • Raise the issues, ideas and concerns of young people
  • Develop strategies to address the issues important to young people
  • Increase the community’s awareness of young people and the issues that are important to them
  • Highlight young people’s contributions to the community

Grants for 2021 Youth Week have closed. Grants for 2022 will open towards the end of 2021. Council will decide what Youth Week activities, events and programs will be funded early in the new year. For further information please email council@lakemac.nsw.gov.au
